Mayor says she 'personally commits to GETTING IT FIXED, FIRST!', meaning putting the IHP rule back into the District Plan so people can get resource consent to build.
At the Community Meeting last night held in New Brighton, the hall was packed to capacity. Concerned residents of Christchurch East attended to gather in support and rally together to show a united front on getting action on this erroneous and debilitating wording that exists in the district plan right now..
Christchurch Mayor Lianne Dalziel was asked to make a comment. She says she is 'confident the council will vote unanimously on Thursday' to get the RUO rule and policy statement put back in the District Plan as was intended by the IHP, reflected in Judge Hansen's letter.
Issue 2 is she wants to find out why this omission occurred. But clearly states that it imperative this rule needs to be re-instated first, then find out why it happened. She supports her CEO in attaining a full independent inquiry into this matter.
She said she personally commits to GETTING IT FIXED, FIRST!
